Welcome to October Halloween Fun !

Welcome October!!

In full fall swing here!
Outside the weather is breezy , and cool, and their are signs of fall

I would like take a moment to
introduce to you "Hocus" and "Pocus"
Hocus has such a sweet and gentle temperament, and is very useful around the house.

Pocus on the other hand, can be quite mischievous.
And, delights in trickery .
they will be available together tonight on my Etsy.

Another Giveaway!
This year we are participating in a Halloween party on October 17 ,hosted by Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist. Reagan is so excited about this , and me too. My Mother in law will be here visiting from California that week , so she is coming to play too!
I will be having another giveaway to celebrate . We will start off with
Chocolate of course!
I found these while out on one of my 20 minute "power" shopping trips the other day, and thought they were the absolute cutest chocolate bars ever! 3 large full size chocolate bars with vintage Hallowe
en postcard wrappers. Yum!


I will also be giving away this Hocus Pocus vintage doll box from Staffordshire Garden Designs.

I just may be adding more to this
giveaway as we go along , so stay tuned. (I do get very excited about this time of year).

Oh , and if you mention my giveaway on your blog and link back to Plays with Paper, let me know ,and I will enter you in the giveaway twice!

The giveaway drawing will be the same day as the Halloween blog party on October 17!
Hope to see you then!
